JinSoon Is Taking A Colorful Stand

JinSoon has partnered with graffiti artist Chris Riggs on this bright and vivid shade collection. The messaging and meaning behind this partnership resonates with all of us. The names of the shades are Love, Hope, Peace, and Grace. Each of the polishes are available for $18 a piece, and are hitting the JinSoon website later this month. (They are available for pre-order on the Barneys site right now.) We think they’ll make the perfect accompaniment to your spray-painted sign at the next march.

Introducing a Chic Collab with Nails Inc.

NAILS INC will launch a unique limited edition nail shades inspired by the Spring/ Summer 2015 Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection. The Japanese-inspired shades, Bamboo White and Judo Red, come in a frosted, limited edition version of the new Nails Inc bottle design. Both polishes in this collection are cremes and are well pigmented (two coats is the ideal). Nails Inc Bamboo White is a pink-tinged bisque creme. It’s milky but not streaky. Feminine and chic. Nails Inc Judo Red is a tomato red creme that can look very orange, depending on the light. It’s vibrant and rich and super glossy. Overall, the colors are not ground-breaking but the formula is fantastic. If you are an LE packaging collector, you will be all over this product.  You can get it here.
